'Growth occurs when individuals confront problems, struggle to master them, and through that struggle develop new aspects of their skills, capacities, views about life.'

Why Counselling?

Counselling can offer you the time and space to work through your problems and gain a different perspective on the issues that are troubling you.  Sometimes sifting through emotions can be hard to do alone.  Therefore, through therapy, you gain the support to work through things together and allow clarity and new perspectives to be gained.

Often life can throw us off balance and so taking time out to rebalance is so important.  We often focus on taking care of our physical health, eating well and taking exercise yet neglect our mental health.   Allowing the opportunity to make time for yourself can be hugely beneficial.  Counselling is for everyone - you don't need to be in crisis to benefit from taking some time to listen to yourself and build your self-awareness.

Therapy provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk to a trained professional about your issues and concerns. Your therapist will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and of others.

A counsellor will not give you their opinions or advice or prescribe medication. They will help you find your own solutions – whether that’s making effective changes in your life or finding ways of coping with your problems.

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” 

― Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person: A Therapist's View of Psychotherapy

Benefits to Counselling

There are many benefits to counselling. While it was previously seen as a final option for those who have reached crisis point, now it is recognised as a preventative measure, a form of self-care in managing difficult feelings before they get worse.


  • To give you a safe place to talk to a trained professional without judgement.

  • To help you make sense of difficult feelings/emotions and understand yourself.

  • To help you resolve complicated issues, or find ways to manage them.

  • To help you recognise unhelpful patterns and/or behaviours, and find ways to change them (if you want to).

I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgmental calm space in which you can take the time to understand what is on your mind.  The space in which we work is quiet and there is no agenda or pressure to go anywhere that you do not feel comfortable to.

My practice is within easy reach of Cobham, Cranleigh, Godalming, Guildford, Farnham, Haslemere, Woking and Weybridge.
